Why KnowBe4 IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Every morning at KnowBe4, employees start their workday with a 5-20 minute company-wide daily briefing, where our CEO, Stu, and other executives, update all Knowsters about current happenings in the company and within our industry. Next, all departments at KnowBe4 collaborate during daily team stand-up meetings, so every employee is fully aware of what others on their team are working on. These quick, yet effective check-ins, allow Knowsters to communicate with one another while also having dedicated time to coordinate, brainstorm, and share ideas.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

Every day at KnowBe4 is filled with celebrations. Birthdays, work anniversaries, sales goals, and company milestones are all reasons to celebrate, and we celebrate big. There are always streamers, party horns, and applause sounding around the offices, and special events call for special celebrations, such as trips to local theme parks. Our employees have a positive vision for our future because our culture is centered around our people; we cultivate an environment of happy employees who work hard together to reach company-wide goals. It’s no wonder we have been ranked a top workplace for the last six years in a row!

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

At KnowBe4, we recognize the value of building a diverse team that draws on different backgrounds and experiences. Our culture heavily focuses on creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. For example, we offer employee resource groups to all of our employees. Our ERGs are designed to give employees a place to come together with others in the company who may have shared experiences. Additionally, all employees ideas are encouraged to bring their ideas forth to leadership with our “no-door policy”. We even have a suggestion box where all employees can submit their ideas to make KnowBe4 even better!

At KnowBe4, there are endless opportunities to guide Knowsters on their career journeys. We offer leadership skills training, internal career coaching, and bonuses for employees who earn certifications. We love to watch our employees grow and have a history of promoting internally- which is very frequent! Our Director Of Career Development, also known as “Career Dave,” has a wealth of knowledge about how employees are hired, promoted, and developed. He is an excellent source of encouragement and motivation for our employees’ career journey. In addition, KnowBe4 also offers an on-site life coach to discuss personal challenges.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

KnowBe4’s employees, including our leadership, practice extreme ownership, radical transparency, and complete honesty. Through extreme ownership, employees totally own their sphere of responsibility and take full ownership over their area. When something goes wrong, no one passes the blame. Instead, everyone looks internally to see what they could have done better to prevent the issue. Through radical transparency, we have cultivated an environment of freedom and trust. By practicing complete honesty, employees feel comfortable sharing feedback and accepting it, and it allows our employees to be on the same page. These values are the foundation of our culture and people.

Company Practices / Love

PROGRAMS AND PRACTICES WE GIVE TO OUR EMPLOYEES THAT CREATE A LOVED WORKPLACE ARE …

KnowBe4 is proud to offer all of our employees employee resource groups that provide community, support, and a sense of belonging within our organization. Our ERGs include the Knowster Parents group, the Black Knowsters Network, the LGBTQ+ group, Women in Technology, Military and Veterans Resource Group and most recently, our Hispanic/Latin group, Vamos! These groups help to promote change within the organization, provide a voice for members within the company and offer mentorship and educational opportunities. In addition, our ERGs spearhead community outreach efforts, philanthropic activities and social events for members, and have been an integral part of our DE&I initiatives.

CEO Strengths

OUR CEO SERVES AS A MODEL OF OUR COMPANY VALUES BY …

Our CEO Stu is one-of-a-kind! Not only has he cultivated a company culture of highly productive and happy employees, but he also puts a big emphasis on continued learning. Stu encourages employees to spend one hour a day learning new skills or strengthening existing ones. He truly serves as a model of our company values. He hosts regular “Ask Me Anything” sessions and randomly selects employees each month to have lunch with him. Stu’s “No Door Policy” encourages employees to share ideas and ask questions. He welcomes all individuals to bring their true authentic selves to work!

Our response to COVID-19

At the beginning of the pandemic, KnowBe4 quickly transferred to remote work while still maintaining our fun and unique company culture. Our Fun and Shenanigans team adjusted all of their activities to keep our employees engaged while working remotely. For example, our fitness classes, which are held onsite for employees, are also uploaded to KnowBe4’s YouTube channels so all employees can access them. Fun company events, such as our monthly trivia competitions, are still happening but offered on a virtual platform where everyone can participate. KnowBe4 also proudly offers flexible scheduling and many hybrid and remote positions to accommodate employees.
